BeOne, a Dutch brand, has released an entry-level bike for 2011 called Chase. With an outsized thick downtube, its 7005 alloy frame is well finished and mated to magnificent Easton EC70X carbon / alloy cross specific fork pair. These forks with superb handing characteristics do not suffer brake vibration.
Very reliable, all the pieces of the kit function very well, including the Shimano 105 front and rear mechs, hubs, levers, and cassette. The Mavic CXP22 rims, Ritchey Pro finishing kit, Tektro brakes, and Selle Italia XO saddle are all guaranteed high-quality.
An impressive spec list makes the 2011 BeOne Chase a superior entry-level bike something to watch for. Also part of the complete package is the FSA Vero Cross chainset, which comes with a traditional square tapered cartridge bottom bracket.
